Right before Christmas, we visited Den Haag for a week and a half - we arrived home about 9 pm on December 23 - with our internal clocks in complete disarray - we had one day to frantically wrap presents, get groceries, etc, etc. to be ready for Christmas. We survived, but it was not particularly elaborate.
We found the Netherlands to be a fabulous place! The people are friendly, the museums are great, and the food is excellent! I would highly recommend it. Here are some pics of our trip.
First up, here is the living room, dining room, sun room and kitchen area of the apartment we rented:
We visited Delft and the Royal Delft pottery place (after that visit, our bags were significantly heavier!)
We visited Van Kleef distillers in Den Haag (which put our bags right at the weight limit). Their most famous client was Vincent Van Gogh.
We went to the Royal Christmas market. I didn't get a lot of photos, but here is one of several groups of Christmas carolers that were performing:
And, of course, we took the obligatory photo in The Hague:
We also visited several other places: the Louwman Car Museum, the Madurodam, the Peace Palace, Museum Mesdag, and the Mauritshuis.
